Title:
Auto weight
Kind Code:
A1


Abstract:
My invention is unique in that there is currently no device currently incorporated in automobiles, trains, planes, trucks, or vessels that automatically or manually provides occupants and/or cargo weight to the person(s) requiring such information. My invention incorporates a weighing system (digital or analog), in a transportation vehicle or vessel, that automatically or manually provides occupant(s) and/or cargo weight to the person(s) requiring such information for safety, law enforcement, personal, or any other use. For example: A manufactured Pick-up truck would offer the option of the owner(s) to automatically and/or manually, determine the weight of cargo and/or occupants, through digital and/or analog interpretation.
